Write a note on small intestine of man.

Small intestine :Â SmallÂ intestine is distinguishable into threeÂ regions, a â€˜Câ€™ shaped duodenum, a longÂ coiled middle portion jejunum and a highlyÂ coiled ileum.

(1)Â Duodenum : It has a length of 25 cm. It is C-shaped. The accessory pancreatic duct and haptopancreatic duct opens into duodenum independently. The haptopancreatic duct brings bile and pancreatic juice from gall bladder and pancreas into duodenum respectively. Its opening is guarded by sphincter of oddi. In duodenum, mainly digestion of food occurs. The bile and pancreatic juice act on food in duodenum.

(2)Â Jejunum : It has a length of bout 6.0 â€“ 7.00 m. Jejunum has length of 4 m and ileum has length of 2.5 m.
